My Approach to Helping

I have several years of experience with extensive training in modern psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I work with people coping with depression, anxiety, loss, grief, life transitions, relationship issues, and LGBT challenges. Additionally, I specialize in artists, athletes, chronic illness, and psychosomatics. I work at a gentle and non-confrontational pace. Whether it be in work, relationships, play, or spirituality, I will help you unfreeze aspects of your life that feel frozen, then, help you to decide how you want to negotiate the details of your new flow.

More Info About My Practice

I am a certified psychoanalyst in New York City. I am affiliated with the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center, Blanton Peale Psychoanalytic Clinic, and the Westchester Institute for Psychoanalytic Training. My core training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy is from the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis, where I was awarded psychoanalytic certification. I am Chair of the Analyst's in Training Committee at the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis and serve as a board member at the American Board for Accreditation of Psychoanalysis. Additionally, I am a consultant for Dance Magazine's mental health articles.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Various events or traumas in a person's life can stifle the growth of dendrites in the brain. If emotional or relational traumas begin at an early age, the right hemisphere is shown to have limited growth in development based on neuroscientific research. Since the right hemisphere is where emotional responses are regulated, any disturbance in its growth can hinder emotional processing in a person. Luckily, recent neuroscience shows that talking in therapy can mend these dendrites and can help to re-develop the right hemisphere for easier functioning. In essence, it does not matter what you are talking about in therapy, as long as you are talking. However, speaking with a therapist in particular is important as it can provide certain expertise that friends and family, alone, cannot offer your brain.
